The SDI Instructor Examination

The SDI Instructor Examination is your last step in becoming a Professional SDI Dive Instructor. When you completed the IDC Instructor Development Course with your IT Instructor Trainer or IT Staff you are qualified to apply for your IE Instructor Examination. The Instructor Examination will take 2 Days.

At these Examination Days you will have to Proof your Knowledge again with:

  • Theory Exams
  • Classroom Presentations
  • Confined and Open Water Presentations

After you passed all Requirements of the examination the Examiner will send all documentation to the International Training Headquarter which will check and process your application to put you into Teaching Status. Now you are able to teach the first SCUBA diving courses. With your new Ranking of an Open Water Diving Instructor you are allowed to teach all basic diving courses like:

  • Discover SCUBA
  • Open Water Diver
  • Advanced Open Water Diver
  • First AID
  • Rescue Diver
